Discussions that mention potassium

As you say, this could be any number of different things - from poor diet, to tourettes, or something like Essential Tremor. The only way to get a proper diagnosis would be to visit your doctor for an examination.

Any multivitamin should be beneficial if your diet is poor, magnesium and potassium I know are important ones. Also try and steer clear of stimulants like caffeine as they can make the twitching much worse.

Do you take any medication that could cause these twitches? Sometimes it can be a side-effect of medicines.
No medication. I take a centrum vitamin a day, but other than that nothing. Ill try to get some magnesium/potassium and see what happens from there. Thanks
